|Heres the deal, and thanks in advance for any help, I really do appreciate it. |
I have spent the last several days going through forums, the ATI website, the
Using the Mobility Modifier, uninstalling/reinstalling all sorts of ATI drivers
to get this card working again...but still am stuck with a non working ATI RADEON
MOBILITY 7000 64MB PCI with TV/OUT , just comes up as exclamation point in device
manager but says ATI RADEON on it. I dont want to just buy a new one because I
know this one works and its a low profile card in a computer without anything but
a PCI port (NO PCIE or AGP on this thing). I am running Windows XP Pro with
I have used the catalyst uninstaller to completely clean up the registry, and
install from scratch, I have used several different versions of the catalyst
software, from version 9 all the way back to veresion 5. I have used the
Modifier to modify the INF files and rerun the catalyst software, still keep
getting errors that setup cannot find specified hardware.
I have tried browsing manually for the file by right clicking/update/driver/choose
and drilling down to the INF in the c:\ati\support\xxxx, it finds Radeon, I
select and it acts like it installs but at the end it says to reboot, I say
reboot, but when it comes back up, still have the exclamation point and catalyst
software will still not run.
I have followed instructions to a T on this site:
By the way this is a desktop, I had it working originally when I bought it but it
was a big hassle just like it is becoming now...., no updates have been made
since, the computer basically just sits there unless I watch a movie off of it.
Just one day came home and it simply didnt work and then found that the driver
was missing or messed up after plugging into a monitor with the onboard video.
Here is all the info off of the card itself, and the video chip:
ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7000 64 MB PCI W/TV OUT
M6-P (on the large chip under heatsink)
N625 REv. 01
Thanks again for any help!
